I know this doesn't look like a pony...Braden was just doing some "mutten busten" Isn't the jam so pretty?
These are my first four loafs of bread....one of them I made into a cinnamon roll loaf
I am a bit late posting this but still wanted to anyways. For the fourth of July, and our anniversary, Josh and I took the kids up to beautiful utah to visit with both aunt Amys. We had a great time. Josh, the kids and I were introduced to Amy's new boyfriend Eric. He is a great guy and fun to be around. I also was lucky enough to go to lunch with amy on her birthday. It was alot of fun. Mackenzie and I really enjoyed our lunch with the birthday girl. The next night I went up to Amy's birthday party in South Jordan. Meghan threw the party for her...it was a great party with alot of her closest friends there. It was alot of fun seeing Meghan up there too. Since I was staying with my sister amy in pleasant grove, she offered to watch the kids while I went to the party. I love my kids, but it is nice to be alone sometimes. :) Another couple highlights of my trip were going to Thanksgiving point to the animal farm. It was a super hot day but we had alot of fun. The kids got to ride the ponies there. Braden had a blast!!! I also was taught by my BROTHER IN LAW David how to make jam. I have always wanted to learn and this was a great opportunity for me. We made strawberry jam. It was so much fun and so much easier than I had thought it would be. I will always laugh whenever I make jam because I will remember that my "macho" brother-in-law taught me how. Thanks dave!! Once I got home to durango, I started teaching myself how to make homemade bread. It is a lot of fun. I have lately become extremely cheap and obsessed with trying to stretch a dollar. I think that if I can do something, or make something myself I will do it. It only costs me $.84 to make one loaf of bread. I know thats not saving much and some may think its not worth the trouble, but its a great way to get out aggression :) also, it makes me feel like I accomplished something. This summer has also been "the summer of chocolate covered strawberries". I am absolutely obsessed with making them...there are so easy and absolutely delicious. Josh doens't complain one bit....he likes them more than I do. If I keep basing all of my new hobbies around bread and chocolate I will be over 500 pounds soon....I better take up running or something.
